Hunter Mountain, May 22, 2005

A climb of Hunter, the 2nd highest Catskill peak, on a wet fogging Sunday morning, finished up a great weekend. Although not an explicit goal, on this first weekend of Catskill hiking I climbed the 5 highest peaks of that region.

Finding ourselves in the city on Memorial Day rather than on the mountains, My wife and I took the opportunity to visit this gem in the big city on a beautiful day. We were amply rewarded.
